Out of an abundance of caution, we will NOT hold our traditional Christmas Eve Candlelight Service this year. We have been fortunate to have been able to spread out in the Sanctuary and hold our Sunday worship services in a socially-distanced and safe manner. Unfortunately we can’t do the same for our Christmas Eve service, which us usually attended by many friends and extended families. On the Sunday following Christmas we will light the Christ Candle on the Advent Wreath in the Sanctuary to recognize the birth of Christ, our Savior. So please be sure to join us on December 27 as we come together to celebrate Christmas with our church family.
We will also break with tradition for our first Communion Service of the new year. Instead of offering Communion on the first Sunday of the month, the first Communion of 2021 will be held on January 10. This Sunday we will also ordain and install our three new Elders. The first Session meeting of the year will be held that afternoon.
This has been a crazy year, and we’ve almost made it through! “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28) We don’t know what God’s plan is for 2021, but we will continue in our mission to faithfully serve God and to proclaim the Gospel.
